I've had the orignal IL-2 for quite a while now, but I've always stuck to flying fighters. I've been having a go at bombing today and I can't seem to hit a thing... any tips?

Mainly its just practice with your speed, alt and timing.
I generally set my bombs on a 3 second delay and go in low.

Dive-bombing is easier than strafe bombing but more dangerous against AAA, IMO.

Just like with the deflection shooting threads. Practice, practice, practice. We don't have HUD indicators to tell us when to drop (I'm thinking A-10 in LOMAC).
